Fashionable Tiling

In honor of the recent fashion shenanigans during the legendary New York Fashion Week last week, I thought we should discuss how very similar the fashion and textile industry is to the tile industry. Seems strange, doesn’t it? For all of you who believe that fashion is silly and/or shallow…well, it is. But whatever your … Continue reading

*GUEST POST* Color-Changing Tile

Today I have another guest writer. Chris from Specialty Art Glass has introduced me to a product I had no idea existed (mind-boggling, I know): color-changing tile! This tile is seriously cool, and I think the possibilities for using this tile are very intriguing, but I will let him tell you about it below. * … Continue reading

Kitchens With COLOR: Pink

Ah yes. Pink. I have mentioned pink on this blog before, but today we focus on it in the kitchen format, which is absolutely a harder space to pull off pink than say, your girly girl bathroom or vanity area. There are many things I love about the color pink. First and foremost, it’s a … Continue reading

Kitchens With COLOR: Yellow

Well, October is officially over, and November is here. To me, this marks the beginning of the holiday season. And before you jump down my throat about celebrating holidays too early (Christmas decorations for sale in October? Slightly excessive, Costco), let me clarify that my mood begins to shift from winter dread to childlike excitement. … Continue reading

Kitchens With COLOR: Orange

Happy Halloween my beautiful (and handsome) readers! I’m taking it easy on Halloween this year; just a nice night carving pumpkins with my significant other and watching scary movies while he tries to scare the bejezus out of me. I hope you are all enjoying your holiday as well! In honor of this great holiday, … Continue reading

Kitchens With COLOR: Green

I would like to begin by mentioning that I was very surprised by how many green kitchen concepts I found. When I began this post, I had over 30 photos. I have whittled it down to these 15, which is still quite a bit larger than any of my other color-related posts, but I had … Continue reading

Kitchens With COLOR: Red

While I have already taught you how to add a red *kapow!* to your kitchen before, this post will focus entirely on using red tile. Red is a tricky color to get right, I’m not going to sugarcoat it for you folks. I was only able to find a handful of photos that I felt comfortable sharing … Continue reading

Kitchens With COLOR: Blue

I’ve been called out. Yes, dear readers, one of you has called me out. And I thank you for it. I have been posting a lot about neutral kitchens lately. In my defense, that is due to the fact that the overall trend with kitchen design at the moment is towards neutrals, but that is … Continue reading

*Guest Post* Mirrored Tiles

Today I am relinquishing my blog to a guest post from Susi, an exceptional writer at the popular design blog Design Shuffle. You may or may not have noticed that I have a flair for the dramatic and I tend to like anything shiny or glittery. So when she propositioned me to write a post … Continue reading

Why I Don’t Like Chinese Tile

Well folks, I think I’ve officially hit the tile big-leagues. If there is such a thing, I think you would know you’re in it when Chinese tile manufacturers start spamming you with product brochures about their glass and stone tiles. It’s both flattering and annoying simultaneously. It’s flattering that I’m showing up on their radar. It’s annoying because … Continue reading
